EPIC FAIL..!

Lesson No1.  Heat and silicone rubber don't mix.


Lesson No2.  Keep your hoses well away from direct heat or metal parts of your brewery that may cause disaster on your brew day.

I got through the whole process of Mash, Sparge and Boil and didn't notice this until I was doing my routine clean up at the end of the day. I may have been nano seconds away from a complete breach of the hose as I recirculated the Mash liquor and didn't know it and thank god it didn't!

Time will tell if there are going to be any effects on the finished product 

Cheers everyone
